What a week! I was frantically finishing editing a test on Wednesday when an announcement came over the intercom. Usually it is another lockdown drill. This time it was my principal announcing that I had been voted as teacher of the year for my school! A huge group of people from the school and the district came rushing into my room with flowers!
Then I got to write some essays for the teacher of the year and read some essays about endangered species from my ninth graders. And assign some essays on a test about cells for my AP kids. Its been a whirlwind.
Anna is home for the weekend! She has a week off for fall break. Monday is a teacher workday for us and Columbus day for the kids. I have a few things to finish up at school, but I'll do those after Anna goes back to school again. The quarter ended on Friday, so there are those last minute odds and ends. I'm going to be out of town for two days next week, so I should clean up my classroom a bit and make a few copies for the sub.
